The main thing to watch out for is fees OF ANY KIND. Real agents make their living by selling books to publishers and taking a commission for doing it, not by charging authors up-front fees.
Hope that helps.
: I found this statement of the internet:
: Dishonest agents prey on writers by charging fees. They may also promote their own paid services, often misrepresenting their knowledge and expertise.
: These agents don't earn their income by selling manuscripts to publishers, but by extracting money from their clients.
: If this is true, how to tell the honest ones from the dishonest ones?
